De'Anthony Melton - USC's Swiss Army Knife
January 25, 2017

Unheralded USC freshman guard De'Anthony Melton has exceeded expectations through 21 games, evolving into a starter for the Trojans in a do-it-all, two-way role that's led him to become the NCAA's only player to average at least 5 assists, 8 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per 40 minutes.

An 18-year-old from Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, California, Melton didn't even crack the RSCI Top 200 out of high school and wasn't expected to make this type of impact in his first year with USC . While he has a ways to go in terms of his ball-handling, lead guard skills, and shooting stroke, and certainty needs more time and experience before he's ready to play in the NBA, Melton has caught the attention of scouts thanks to his impressive physical tools, sharp defensive instincts and strong feel for the game.

Here's a look at how Melton has been able to have an impact for the Trojans despite only scoring 13.3 points per 40 minutes on 48% from 2 and 33% from 3.
